After a weeks’ rest, the Peacocks resume their Vanarama National League South campaign when they welcome Farnborough to the Cygnet Health Care Stadium tomorrow evening (14th February), ko 7.45pm.

A blank weekend due to Hungerford’s involvement in the Isuzu FA Trophy gave Town a chance to recharge their batteries for the onslaught of fixtures coming their way in the next eleven weeks starting with the rearranged visit of the Hampshire club tomorrow who will be seeking the League double after winning the earlier match 1-0 at the Easy As HGV Stadium.

Farnborough of course accompanied the Peacocks up to the National League South after winning the Southern Premier South Play-Offs last season and have had an impressive campaign to date, sitting in 11th spot with 42 points from 26 games. Apart from the top three sides in the table, Farnborough are the only team Town cannot overtake with their numerous games in hand, with the Yellows having conceded just 25 goals, the second best defensive record in the division behind the Peacocks’ 20. Farnborough’s recent form has been excellent, with only one defeat from their last 11 competitive games since losing at Wrexham in the Emirates FA Cup in November, which followed  a win at League Two side Sutton United in the 1st Round Proper. Their last three games have seen them score 12 goals without conceding, League victories over Concord Rangers and Cheshunt sandwiching an 8-0 romp over AFC Portchester in the Hampshire Senior Cup last Tuesday. They will travel west then in confident mood with seven League wins and three draws from their 14 away trips so far.

With results elsewhere at the weekend,  the Peacocks dropped a place to 17th so will be keen to maximise home advantage and continue to accumulate points to secure their National League status for next season. They will be boosted by the return of Ollie Chamberlain who hasn’t played since the Havant game a fortnight ago and skipper Nick Grimes who has recovered from a niggle. Head of Football Rob Dray said:” We could really have done with playing on Saturday to keep us in the groove. Farnborough have done magnificently since joining us in the National League and are on a great run. It’s always a competitive game against them and tomorrow will be no different but we need to keep our momentum, there’ s no let-up between now and the end of April so we must do our utmost to make home games count.”
